Vic Kohring's lawyer, John Henry Browne, is trying to submit an affidavit from a remorseful juror that now claims that most of what the government called bribes didn't seem corrupt to him.

Vic Kohring's lawyer, John Henry Browne, is trying to submit an affidavit from a remorseful juror that now claims that most of what the government called bribes didn't seem corrupt to him.

Browne's angle is to get a lighter sentence for Kohring.

Kohring, a former Alaska state legislator, was convicted of bribery, conspiracy and attempted extortion.

The juror, Phillip Fritsch, says the jury based all of it's decisions only on the $1000 that Bill Allen handed to Kohring on tape at the Baranof Hotel in Juneau (See Below).

Browne says he will recommend a "split sentence". Around 6 to 8 months in a federal detention center, and then up to 18 months of some sort of house arrest.

Kohring is scheduled to be sentenced May 8.
